A mechanical flit, like a playing card in the rusty spokes of a slowly turning bicycle wheel, and we're off into The Early Years world once again.
Throbbing keyboards and glitchy robotic drum patterns lead us through the circuitry of a song that gives praise at the pristine altar of Krautrock and takes on the name of legendary post punk visionaries Suicide.
"There's a beating in my chest like a heart attack, it goes on" drones David Malkinson invoking the likes of Numan, Bowie and Ian Curtis all within a single line. As the track grows, the claustrophobia builds, guitars tear across the song like lightning flashes in a bleak mechanized landscape. It steals the breath from your lungs.
The Computer Voice has a more human element to it although the drums still boom like thunder and the electronics chirp like they should. By now however, Malkinson has morphed into Jim Morrison in both tone and phrasing. No prancing about in the desert with a naked red Indian for him though, it's as if he's performing a rain dance in the middle of Tron.
It's an exhilarating clash of the human and the electronic, and really, there is no better way for Sonic Cathedral to celebrate their 10th single release.
